Wheatley Student Musicians Recognized

Earlier this month, two Wheatley seniors, Kuan Yu and Alexandra Boubour, were recognized as All-State musicians by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA). Kuan was recognized for his work with the viola while Alex was recognized for her vocal talents. As part of this recognition, Kuan and Alex will represent Wheatley at the NYSSMA Conference in Rochester beginning 4 December.

Congratulations as well to Wheatley senior Jillian Gothelf for her selection as an All-National alternate for the Mixed Chorus Ensemble as an alto by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).  NAfME holds its All-National Ensemble concerts in Nashville, Tennessee during October 26-28.
